/PRNewswire/ -- A rare blend of events including an afternoon playing tennis paired with a refreshing wine tasting will set the stage for a most unique breast cancer fundraising taking place on Sunday, November 22nd from 1- 4PM in Acworth, Georgia.
The Tennis Center at Governors Towne Club (GTC) will be the site of this remarkable combination of events to raise money to fight breast cancer. But perhaps one of the most remarkable aspects about this fundraiser is that 100% of all proceeds raised will be donated to support the important work of the Susan G. Komen For The Cure, Atlanta Affiliate.
Several homeowners at GTC came together and enlisted the help of sponsors T2Tennis, La Parrilla Restaurant and NO Winery to host a Sunday afternoon of mixed doubles and wine tasting all for a great cause. Attendees can select the venue of high activity and colossal fun to play tennis organized by the professionals of T2Tennis. All prizes and event coordination for the "Tennis For the Cure" have been donated by T2Tennis, Atlanta's premier flexible tennis league.
Non-sporting types can participate and raise money to fight breast cancer through "Tasting for the Cure" by enjoying the afternoon tasting the various white wines of NO Winery and learning many interesting facts and subtleties of the various grape varietals and how they positively impact the wines.
At 2:00PM, Kenneth G. Horton, developer of Governors Towne Club will officially open the fundraiser. Congressman and Doctor Phil Gingery will be on hand to cut the ribbon to the Silent Auction. Over 50 valuable products and services have been contributed to the Silent Auction from individuals and companies in the Atlanta area. Attendees will be able to bid on items ranging from a package of horse riding lessons from Serenbe Stables, to Macintosh Computer Service and Support by 3 Alarm Fire, to a signed autographed racket donated by Melanie Oudin, the 17 year old tennis star from Marietta who became world famous in this year's US Open. Additionally, the Silent Auction will include items in all price ranges from gift certificates from The Shaving Gallery, La Parrilla Mexican Restaurants, and Abundance Luxury Limo to the use of an upscale vacation cottage in Destin, Fl, for a week's stay. Perhaps, one of the most unique donations that will be up for auction is "An Evening with Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood", including a private reception at Gallery 4463 and a dinner at The Old Mill. And finally, cheering on the event will be Atlanta's very own Falcon cheerleaders!
Everyone attending will receive a pink Susan G. Komen For The Cure "Goodie Bag" filled with various donated items. The gift bags will be handed out by two Mrs. Georgia titleholders who both just happen to be homeowners at Governors Towne Club. Mrs. Amanda Vogel, former Miss Georgia USA 1985-86 and Mrs. Georgia America 2005-2006, and the current reining Mrs. Georgia for 2009 - 2010, Mrs. Jennifer Everett.

A rain date has been set for Sunday, December 6th.
